Sucrose octasulfate dressing versus control dressing in patients with neuroischaemic diabetic foot ulcers (Explorer): an international, multicentre, double-blind, randomised, controlled trial
Implications of all the available evidence
Sucrose octasulfate dressings could be used in current local treatment and management of neuroischaemic diabetic foot ulcers. In the context of multidisciplinary and complex management of this condition, efficient and safe treatments that are also easy to implement by all health-care professionals are needed. Sucrose octasulfate dressings could be considered as a new standard of care.
Our colleagues in NSW are doing some really good work around the Diabetes Debridement Study: A multisite, Translational Research Scheme Project investigating debridement frequency in the management of diabetic foot ulcers
